Touch, feel, learn and explore where rockets launch and inspirational journeys begin. During Summer of Mars at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, the next generation of space explorers will get a front row seat to Mars in a way that is unlike anywhere else on Earth. This summer, find new events, shows and special appearances celebrating the major advances in Mars exploration—all from where we will one day launch the first human mission to Mars. We are also extending free admission to all incoming fifth graders to inspire them to join NASA’s Journey to Mars. Mars needs you!
